Children and adolescents develop in dramatically different ways and a developmental context is essential to understanding problematic sexualbehaviors among children and adolescents. The lenses of normative development and developmental psychopathology are essential to understandingthe meaning and function of problematic or abusive sexual behavior. In turn, understanding the developmentally-informed functions and purposesof problematic sexual behaviors allows for individualized case formulation to guide further assessment, risk management, and establishing thefoundations for building treatment relationships and implementing. A developmentally-informed case formulation can take into account that thesame normative or problematic behaviors may have different meanings or functions among individuals, and that those meanings and functions mayshift over time or context. Case illustrations include youth with Asperger’’s syndrome, intellectual disabilities, and psychiatric disabilities.
